More Colour!

Today I am creating some colour combinations! I can`t wait until it`s getting finally warm here in Germany. Spring is just not there this year and summer won`t come! Really inspired by the "Color Inspirations Book" from Colourlovers.com, I spent some time this afternoon creating my own summer color combinations. My small working space is a glorious mess now, but I like it!

Colour

This weeks exercises are all about colour. I love colour. This exercise was really fun!I tried to look at the colour combinations really intense and then tried to find an expression for the mood they are giving me. And I was surprised that I didn`t have to think about all the expressions really long.




Just after doing this exercise I recognized that I`m looking at colours around me in a different light from now on!

The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design

I`m so exited! I'm doing the e-course "ABSPD-Module 1" now and it's so amazing!

I`ve created my first few patterns these days and I`m really addicted to it!

My starting point and inspiration were pictures of beautiful corals and flowers. I cut the shapes out of paper, scanned it and used Photoshop to create my first patterns from them! And now I`m proud! I love the simple shapes that this method brings with! So... can`t wait to create a few more of these colurful lovely illustrations. So much fun! Here they are!
